A new year; a new month; a new "Just Three." :)
I started "Just Three" because I wanted to fight back in my own head against the notion that I needed to get it all done, and also to give a way to link up with others who might be in the category of (choose the one that applies) -- "I am so scattered and need some direction" ... "Life/work/kids/all of the above keep me busy enough but I want to still quilt when I can" ... "I need an idea for a blog post" ... "I want to show off that I did way more than three" ... "it's just fun to share goals" ... whatever. I started this when miss Scarlet was only 6 months old, almost sleeping through the night consistently, but I needed a little bit of structure.
I feel like a lot of my reports include more of what I didn't finish, than what I did but like many of the rest of the bloggers out there, I made a mosaic of the quilts I finished, and there were actually quite a few of them!
Who knew!?! (click through to flickr to see more specifics/links)
Now without further ado -- here is last month's report:
1) Really finish Treasure Boxes, and donate! ♥
not done. Moving on to next month's list. The top is done.
2) A couple custom orders.
I have this one for baby Harrison up first. They wanted a re-make of a quilt I made for my cousin's baby, with a Red Sox theme. I was so happy with how the letters turned out (because I draw them by hand based on the Red Sox font).
I got the Red Sox quilt (#2) done! (which reminds me -- I need to email Harrison's mama and see if he has made his grand entrance yet)
I still have a couple more custom orders I'll be working on this month -- hoping I have a good chunk of time to sew!
3) And my most important goal this month -- to help give my babies a Merry Christmas...and the big guy too. ♥ ♥ ♥
This one was definitely a success. Christmas with kids = SO MUCH FUN!
(And I finished my Christmas quilt in time too). :)
1) Something old -
I know I need to finish that Treasure Boxes, but my goal is to finish up an old WIP in January.
2) Something new -
I've got a new design I'm playing with, that I'm having fun doing... using these fabrics. When I was pulling them, I didn't realize they were such a rainbow. The palette was inspired by Pantone's color of the year and some of their Spring 2013 colors.
I'm so excited about this one. Thanks to so many of you, I have all the blocks, and I was organizing them the other night, and need to find a lay-out. But trust me -- they're so cute!
RULES -- Pick three goals for the month, and link up here! (You can do more than three if you prefer... I'm flexible like that... and goodness knows I have more than 3 things I'd like to accomplish this month!) :)
Go comment on other people's posts too!
(P.S. I'm linking to Lee's WIP Wednesday!)
